Globe's 18+ million subscribers (golly) can now download Zlango and start uplifting their mobile messaging experience.
The Philippines leads the world in SMS sending, averaging 10 SMS messages a day, so launching Zlango there is a natural.
Here's what they say on their site:
"Only using words in your SMS messaging? Introducing Zlango - hundreds of icons replacing words - it's the new language that is available exclusively at Globe."
"The Zlango craze also works for near-by messaging - write a message and then Zlap it - a full screen slideshow of the message - on the bus - in a movie - in class - communicate silently with Zlango Zlap."
And, you know the rumor you've heard, the one about kids there flipping their phones so they can use 8 fingers instead of just their thumbs, well it's not true. But the rumor about Zlango being the next big thing is southeast Asia... it's true.
